Benjamin Grosvenor’s mastery on the piano will take your breath away. We can’t wait to host the renowned British pianist on MAR 16 / 17.
Internationally recognized for his electrifying performances and insightful interpretations, Benjamin first came to prominence as the outstanding winner of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition (Keyboard Final) at 11 years old. Since that moment, he has performed with the BBC Orchestra for the BBC Proms on multiple occasions, has worked with numerous esteemed conductors, and has won many awards and accolades.
In 2011 Benjamin signed to Decca Classics, becoming the youngest British musician in almost 60 years to sign with the label. For his second solo album on Decca, Dances, he assembled a typically imaginative and appealing program of piano music inspired by the dance form — from Bach to Boogie Woogie via Chopin, Granados, Albeniz, Scriabin and the Blue Danube.
